Jeffery finished last season with 24 catches for 367 yards and three touchdowns. The Bears open the preseason against the Carolina Panthers on Friday.

Fantasy Impact: Fantasy owners will want to see how Jeffery is used by first-year head coach Marc Trestman. Jeffery certainly has the talent to make a fantasy impact this season but no one wants to have deal with a nagging hamstring injury.

Jeffery is worth a pick on Draft Day and the hope is he can stay healthy enough to become a steady No. 2/3 wide receiver in most fantasy formats.
